Price rise

Looks like the price of the K1 is creeping up in the UK according to camera pricebuster. Been 1599 across the page but some dealers are putting the price up. Brexit ??

And the value of the Pound, for sure.

DeutscheBank. Yen is the safe-haven currency right now.

Probably not going to see that great of sales this holiday like we saw last January. A 31mm LTD for $750 usd was EPIC. Hopefully it will come in under $1000.00, we'll see.

Yes, I too am curious about the potential discounts this Black Friday. On camera bodies, the sales never arrived in full.. I hope we see more of the 2013 era discounts again. The prices were so low I bought even when I wasn't in serious need of an upgrade..

Not sure about a price rise - in Oz this weekend Digital Camera Warehouse have the K1 for AU$2658. I took that web page in to my local Camera House and they got Kennedy's to match it for them - so K1 is on it's way. One happy little black duck!

Considering the pricing in the US is now around $1900 for body-only, I think we'll be lucky to see $1500 at Black Friday. That - $1900 USD - translates to around €1700 + VAT, so that's where your €2100 comes from. And it's virtually identical in .

Not surprised to see this, it was very much like this when the first K3 came out - very close to identical pricing across the planet.

Price has also been "adjusted" in Germany (euroland). My dealer (from whom I bought my K-1 end of April for 1999 EUR) wants now 2099 EUR.

(As usual in Europe the price includes VAT/sales tax, in Germany that's 19%).

Without tax that comes down to roughly 2000 USD (given the current exchange ratio of 1 EUR == 1.1242 USD)

No, I do not regret being an early adopter. No way.

Pound versus yen has gone down by 17% since April, so the 12.5% price rise isn't bad. But it could get worse (due to the vote to leave the EU). Some will say 'we told you so'!

Not to get political, but short term sure, long term, maybe not. If the EU completely tanks in 5 years, the UK may be very glad they disentangled themselves from that mess. I'd bet on the UK and not on the EU. But that's a real outsiders perspective for sure.
